No. 4-Seeded UCLA Women Will Host Tournament Game


March 17, 2016

The UCLA women's basketball team will battle the University of Hawaii in the first round of the NCAA Tournament on Saturday inside Pauley Pavilion at 3:30 p.m. on the UCLA campus. The Bruins finished the regular season 24-8 and Hawaii is 21-10.

UCLA placed fourth in their conference with a record of 14-4 while Hawaii was 12-4 in conference play. Both teams recorded four wins in their last five games but the Bruins appear to be a better offensive team.

The Bruins offense is led guards sophomore Jordin Canada and senior Nirra Fields. Sophomore forward Monique Billings is also having a good offensive year but the key to the Bruins offense maybe the play of junior guard Kari Korver.

Korver has been in a season long shooting slump but if the she can recapture her shooting touch in the NCAA tournament the Bruins can make a deep run.
